Theoretically, it could happen 11:59pm(pst) which would be 2:59am here on the east coast.
Edit 11:24pm est..still nothing...I bet Nintendo waits almost until midnight pst time, that way not too many people will be downloading all at once. Oh well. I am usually up until 2am, so I will probably stay up until it happens.
Right, but as soon as it's midnight, it's no longer the 6th by ANY definition, fuzzy or not. The announcement said the evening of the 6th. If it comes out at 12:00:01 on June 7th, it's late. Not significantly so for sure, but technically? Yes. There is no definition by which any time of June 7th is part of June 6th.
Ah... I know what it is. Reggie is standing in front of a mirror right now working on his poker face. He probably wants to come onto the stage tomorrow with a super shit eating grin, but would rather drop bombs with a horizontal line from cheek to cheek. .... he's practicing so hard that he forgot to flip the switch to activate the update.
Oh Reggie.... wow me with your poker face. .... it feels so wrong typing that. It really does.
